I'm just going to come out and say it: the supermodels of the '90s rule all. However, with the resurgence of old school models in Fall campaigns and the like, there was bound to be a backlash. For me, fashion is mostly fun and games, but there are some things I feel very strongly about. The esteem of the era of the supermodel is one of those things.
Both of these black-and-white groups are shot by Peter Lindbergh. The posse on the left, led by Naomi, Christy and Cindy was shot in 1989 for British Vogue. The youngins on the right, including Lily Donaldson, Catherine McNeil and Sasha Pivovarova, were in the most recent issue of Vogue Paris. Times have changed, huh? Often imitated, never to be duplicated, I think there is no comparison. But I'm biased — in 1989 I was a budding fashionista and these beautiful girls were my first idols. What say you?
